Fly Away Sculpture by Lucky978 Fly Away Sculpture by Lucky978
I don't know if you guys are interested in this sort of thing....but this is the installation sculpture I have been working on for the last couple of weeks.

It is a life-size paper mache cast of my legs, with varying sizes or birds 'flying away'. It is all paper, glue, tape, and wire. I knew that it was to be installed against white, so I spray painted everything black, and I tried to use white wire for the majority of my support for the birds. Sadly it was very temporary. I only had it up for critique and then was required to take it down.

I had to give you applause just realizing how much work went into this sculpture!! This must have been insanely difficult! On top of that, it also looks absolutely amazing.

Me thinks if ever your critics are too hard on you it is because they envy. I know I admire you beyond all envy. Ty for capturing this on film. Do you still have the pieces? If it were me, I'd reserve a nice corner in my home to permanently install this as a loving reminder to myself to ever feed the creative well. Jus' sayin'... ;)

Of course we're interested. ^^ And that's really cool! It's a really unusual concept, and I absolutely love how the birds came out. Are they made of tape and paper? It's hard to tell.
Why did you have to take it down? And what was the sculpture built for?

looks great! my only thing is that maybe there isn't enough motion in the legs, it seems kind of stiff :P

Absolutely stunning! I love the overall concept of the piece.

My only critique (if you don't mind me saying so) would be that I find the stray pieces of paper or tape by the feet to be little distracting; I'm assuming you left them in place to keep the figure balanced? Other then that, though, it's simply gorgeous--excellent execution! :D :D :D

Thank you :D

Hehe Yes, the braces were less than ideal. I talked to my professor about a different possible way to balance the figure. I tried weights and a few other methods before I resorted to the braces. In the end time got the best of me and I had to settle x.x

Wow this is so cool! I go to an art school and in my art class were doing this thing where we make art and leave it in a public place and if someone wants it they can have it but they have to do a good deed.... This just inspired me for my project so hopefully my art teacher will allow me to make a sculpture... This is just so amazing I love it!
